Proper curing and drying can increase the potency of the weed and make it high-quality. It not only affects the flavor but also the smoke and makes it smoother. As you know, marijuana plants produce cannabinoids.
This process is termed biosynthesis, in which different blends of these cannabinoids are produced. The conversion of non-psychotic cannabinoids into THC may continue well after you have cut the plant. However, the weed needs to be in certain conditions for this to happen. Temperature of 60-70 ° F and humidity of 45-55% is ideal for this process to continue. As a result, the weed is more potent as there is more THC content. The process of drying is a slow one and if you try to quickly dry it, your weed will not be as potent. After you have cut the plant, the terpenes which are aromatic compounds of the plant start to evaporate and degrade. Obviously, you want the plant to retain them in order to have a better flavor. The only way to preserve them is at low temperatures.
Under these conditions, the enzymes of the plant which are still active break down minerals. Additionally, it can also help break down any sugars left because of the chlorophyll decomposition. You do not want this sugar left in the buds as it can make it harsh. Harsh weed would be difficult to smoke and will burn the throat. The sunlight is not good for the weed when it is drying. Light can reduce THC too so it is best to dry it in dark even though sunlight might seem a quick way to dry it. No matter how good your weed is, there is always the threat of mold. Dry marijuana can be stored for long periods and would not be susceptible to any harm from mold or bacteria. In fact, many weed growers have been able to store their weed in air-tight containers for even a whole year. Magic Herb dryer lets you dry your plants under controlled conditions.
